Patient Comments (4)
Springfield, MA |
MRI clearly shows my spine issue yet From start to finish I have been treated like a drug seeker even though lab results confirmed no drug or alcohol use as I stated. The doctor is very quiet and does not make eye contact. He does not explain treatment. The staff does not return calls in a timely manner or at all. Sometimes it takes days for a response for even a minor question - not even a refill. I would never recommend this office to anyone and am seeing a new specialist next week.

The worst Dr in the world. Cares about your money...not about your well being!!
Westminster, MA |
Ive had to tell the doctor the same information repeatedly about my pain and treatment at other facilities. He walks out of the office without even saying goodbye, very awkward. I dont feel he has any empathy for his patients, I feel like a criminal sitting in the office. My wife is also a patient and agrees with me on these issues.
Worcester, MA |
The dr was not very patient friendly , had no interest in my actual pain issue, treated me like I was drug seeking when I was clearly open to any alternatives. He abruptly left the discussion, I did a urine test and based on a very very low level of legal marijuana, less than the lab detection limits are supposed to be. The dr decided to deny me any kind of care based on something I was very up front about. According to the new law it is illegal for professional to deny needed medical care.
